I’m just beginning to play on Ravelry, if you are on, my name is Christinethecurio – not enough room for curious, at least I didn’t become Christinethecur!
So far, I’ve collected a lot of ‘fav’ patterns of mittens and gloves. It turns out, I love the look of gloves with fancy cables, and long cuffs, especially ones with a diagonal lozenge from the ribbing to the base of the fingers, but for taking my kids to the park, I need warm mittens, not just pretty gloves. I’ve also noticed that the stash feature comes in handy for looking at what other people have done with the same yarn, so that you know if it is most suitable for knit and purl patterns, cables, lace or whatever. So far my ball of Sindar Country Style DK is good for lace and cables, I haven’t seen it used for knit and purl patterns besides ribbing.
